Scout campsite PBC Austerlitz


In the quiet of the Forest Austerlitz (municipality of Zeist) in the province of Utrecht lies the Scout Campsite PBC Austerlitz, abbreviated PBC. This area is approximately 10 hectares.

The PBC is a campsite where scout groups can camp in a traditional way. The campsite is run by (ex) scout leaders from all over the Netherlands, all now members of the Scouts group PBC Austerlitz


The campsite is divided into 19 sub-campsites of mixed terrain and of various sizes. These sub-campsites give groups space to set up their tents privately. Each site has its own small campfire circle with benches and a small area for playing games.
Available for all campers there is a large central campfire circle which can accommodate up to 250 people and a large playground.  There is a half-open shelter that can be rented separately.

Traditional Scouting:

Are you looking for a campsite where not everything is organized for you?
You like take care of yourself: your tent, your own kitchen pioneering, your own campfire lit?
Well, you've come to the right place. Only the "bare necessities" are available. Due to the nature of the terrain there is no electricity available on the sub-campsites. Luxury camping in a caravan or motor home is not permitted. It is up to your scouting skills to make yourself as comfortable as possible! In the winter there are more limited facilities: only the centrally placed toilets are available and the hot showers are closed.


Campsite PBC is open every weekend all year around. The weekend starts at Friday 19:00 and closes at Sunday 17:00.
During the summer holiday season PBC is open every day. The summer holiday season is aligned with the school holidays in the Netherlands. These are mainly during the months of July and August but the exact dates differ by year. Please mail us to get the exact dates. Camp weeks start on Saturday from 13:00 and end on the next Saturday at 12:00. This makes the leaving and arrival of groups easier to co-ordinate. The Easter, Whitsun and Ascension weekends we are open longer. With Easter and Pentecost weekend we are open until Monday 17:00. The Ascension weekend starts here on Wednesday evening from 19:00. If you are planning arriving or leaving on a different day or time, please contact the booking office to discuss the possibilities.
